Ed Sheeran reveals the name of his
next album can be found tattooed on his body
He made the reveal to Q magazine
If you are curious about the names of Ed Sheeran’s upcoming albums you just have to get close enough to look at his tattoos, although there are a lot of them and we imagine he has quite a lot of security…
In an exclusive interview with this month’s Q magazine, the ‘Shape of You’ singer revealed, “It’s kind of like Prison Break. It’s all there.”
When Ed signed the Asylum’s contract in 2011, he already had a masterplan and shared it with Ben Cook, President of Atlantic Records UK. He wanted to publish five EPs, five albums named after mathematical symbols and another series of five after that.
So far we have had ‘+’ (plus), ‘X’ (multiply), and ÷ (divide).
Talking about the varying opinions people have on him, he says, “I’ve actually never felt this much hate in my life, but also I’ve never felt this much adoration. There’s two extremes. It’s actually quite a dangerous situation to be in because you’ve got no middle ground, which I haven’t had before.”
Ed added: “It’s weird. Musically, I understand that I am not everybody’s cup of tea but there are people who’ve never met me but have this rage about me as a human being. It’s quite daunting to have millions of people who wants you to fail.” He continues: “The only way to silence people who want you to fail is to keep succeeding.”
We love you Ed!
